In two minds about By Terry Ombre Blackstar Misty Rock

By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock is a product that has been on my wishlist for a very long time so when Feel Unique started to stock By Terry products recently, I decided that it was time to purchase it. I also had Bronze Moon on my list, but it was out of stock so that made my decison of which to buy first. In case you haven't heard of this product before, it is a cream stick eyeshadow - there are plenty of similar products out there, but this was the one on my list.
I was so excited when it arrived and swatched it immediately & fell in love with the colour, which is a shimmery mix of taupe/silver and a hint of purple. The swatch on my hand lasted for hours once it dried, which didn't take very long. I had very high hopes for this product & decided to wear it for the first time on a cinema date with my Hubby.

I applied my Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, as I always do & then applied Misty Rock and swooned at the beauty of the colour. I blended the edges with my MAC 217 brush and was really delighted with how it looked. My husband even commented on how pretty the colour was. So far, so good. The problem I have is that despite having horrendously dry skin, I have very oily eyelids. Having said that, the Nars primer locks my shadow into place normally, but Misty Rock just creased & had pretty much disappeared by the time the film was over (3 hours after application, approximately!). I was so, so disappointed because I loved everything about the product until this happened. It claims to be both long-lasting & waterproof, but sadly not in my case!

Having spent almost €40 on this product, I am not going to give up just yet! I think I will try it with concealer under it or powder (or both!) to see if that helps! Have you any suggestions to help make it last? Have you had similar problems with products like this? Please let me know!
